Fabulous Production, Important Subject! 28 Feb. 2003
By Robert Carlberg - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
A hundred years ago chimpanzies numbered between 1,000,000 and 2,000,000 in 25 African countries. Now "there are no more than 150,000 left," according to Dr. Jane Goodall.
This shocking fact underlies David Lickley's IMAX documentary about Jane Goodall and her groundbreaking research. Her remarkable 43-year career (and counting!) studying the wild chimps at Gombe National Park in Tanzania has led to several important discoveries, causing Science (capital S) to have to redefine what separates Mankind from the other animals. Goodall's own quiet tenacity has been tested as she must now spend most of her time advocating for the very survival of man's closest living relative.
The ultra-high-definition IMAX format provides a gorgeous transfer to DVD format, in both sound and image. Close-up images of the individuals at Gombe, as well as panoramic recordings of the sounds of the rainforest, make this a treat for the eyes and ears. Goodall herself does nearly all of the narration. South African musician Johnny Clegg provides several songs which integrate seamlessly into Amin Bhatia's orchestral score. Mini-featurettes on the DVD describe the difficulty of filming the notoriously-shy chimpanzies in remote Africa with the bulky IMAX cameras -- which can shoot for only 3-minutes at a time. Another featurette describes the recording of the music, including lots of rare shots of Clegg in the studio. Lickley's DVD commentary provides a ton of additional information missing from the original IMAX production.
All in all, this is a wonderful package in every regard.

Knowledge+Understanding=Caring 12 Jun. 2003
By Alydar - Published on
Format: DVD
What a tribute to Dr. Jane's work and the "kindred souls" she is deparately seeking to save from extinction. This IMAX edition captures the "soul" of both Dr Jane and the wild chimpanzees and will surely capture the hearts of all viewers (of any age). Sound and picture are breathtaking and will bring Gombe into your den or living room. But there is something even more important....
Now do two things (1) get this DVD right away and share it with your family, friends, students etc. and then (2) contact the Jane Goodall Institute (Roots & Shoots for the little ones in your life) and help save this species "So Like Us" for our children and their children's children.
A great DVD for high school students 18 Dec. 2014

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
A great DVD for high school students. I use it as an introduction to Jane Goodall, preceding our reading of her book Through A Window. Conveniently split into the IMAX feature (around 30 minutes) and another "making of" featurette. Making science fun!
Dr. Jane is always entertaining 13 Jan. 2011

Informative, fun and interesting. Beautiful photography. If you like Dr. Jane, chimpanzees, or Africa this DVD is a must see.

Great DVD. I highly recommend this for those who love chimpanzees. It shows a lot of old footage of when she first arrived.
